I have just completed this game, PERFECTED it.
-Bafta award for innovation was won IN 2015 by THE VANISHING OF ETHAN CARTER.
-The graphics are highly detailed, and a lot of fun, playing through.
-When I play a game, if it's in FIRST PERSON mode, I appreciate seeing my hands, (at least) my feet.
..Here I saw nothing, buttons were depressed, things were picked up. No hands or feet to be seen, not even my Paul Prospero's
face..no jump buttons,
no possibility of falling off a cliff,
no getting in water because you wanted to.
If a game has a high graphic quality I favor high interaction possibilities with it,
the graphics here are VERY GOOD,
but the interaction was clearly limited to the storyline.
There is no difficulty choice,
-no nightmare setting available,
I don't know if that's a problem with you, IT WASN'T WITH ME.
No cloudsave between PC's.
Major Spoiler FollowsThe game has limited interaction with other living beings,
-There's a zombie,
-A spaceman/astronaut, you even fly to space,
-All he does is speculate about situations he find's then plays out the most probable scene in his own mind,
-When he actually does find Ethan Carter, again, it's a speculative scene & he comforts Ethan into unending darkness;
WELL ALMOST, he does hint heavily at a sequel, which I don't foresee as by this time all of Ethan's relatives are not in the game anymore!
-In the carter house there is, in differing sizes and "evil eye" in the form of a 1/2 skull on the wall in many rooms, keep an eye out for it,
ALTHOUGH THE GRAPHICS ARE FLASHY, THE GAME'S STRICTLY LINEAR STORY GUIDES IT TO THE END,
SOME MAY FIND THAT FRUSTRATING AND WANT MORE OF AN OPEN-WORLD FEEL.
Positive Words for the protagonist
-I am a HARSH critic, :-) he is a good investigator who knows what he is looking for.
At the end of it all, I am recommending THE VANISHING OF ETHAN CARTER.
